Organophosphonate Market to Expand due to Rising Demand from Agrochemical Industry.

Increasing demand for organophosphonates from the cleaning & detergent industry and pulp & paper industry is expected to drive the demand for the Organophosphonate Market
Published 01 October 2015

Organophosphonate is a type of chelating agent having molecules that are able to present more than one bond on a metal ion, hence increasing the ion complex stability. Chelation is a typical way to bind molecules and ions with metal ions. It includes the making of a number of individual coordinate bonds amongst a single central atom and polydentate ligands. These ligands are commonly organic compounds called as chelating agents, sequestering agents, chelants, or chelators. 

Organophosphonates: Used In Boiler Treatment Applications for Preventing Scale Deposits


Global organophosphonate market such as ethylenediaminetetra (EDTMP) and 1-hydroxyethanediphosphonic acid (HEDP) are widely utilized in various household and industrial applications. They are particularly used in boiler treatment applications for preventing scale deposits within water systems by utilizing a scale preventive composition, comprising amine and organophosphonate materials. These compounds present a synergistic effect for preventing scale accumulation within water systems. Moreover, organophosphonates form the basis of a large number of nerve agents, herbicides, and insecticides.

Pulp and Paper Industry Utilizes Organophosphonates for Reducing Cost and Improving Quality

Organophosphonates have a huge demand within the pulp and paper industry and they are utilized for cost reduction and for improving product quality within paper and pulp operations. Organophosphonates are also utilized for industrial cleaning, wherein gluconates are used as cleaning products and detergents. Furthermore, they are used in place of phosphates within detergent formulations. Additionally, synthetic organophosphonates are significantly utilized as herbicide glyphosates in the agrochemical industry. All of these factors are poised to increase the demand for organophosphonates in the coming years. Additionally, growing industrialization, along with strict government policies for fresh and clean water to be utilized in numerous applications, including water treatment chemicals, is predicted to boost the demand for organophosphonates in the forthcoming years.


Environmental Hazards Induced by Organophosphonates may Impede Market Growth

Though organophosphonates are highly popular in a large number of applications, there are some factors that may impede their demand in the coming years. Organophosphonates have been considered as highly poisonous and toxic to wildlife and even human beings. Thus, the lack of environmental viability of organophosphonates may hamper the growth of the market for the same in the near future.


Asia Pacific Organophosphonate Market Emerges as the Biggest Market

On the basis of geography, the global organophosphonate market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Amongst these, Asia Pacific dominates the organophosphonate market, due to the presence of a large number of manufacturers of chelating agents, especially in China. Additionally, Asia Pacific is predicted to experience the swiftest growth among all regional segments in the coming years, due to the rising utilization of organophosphonates within big-scale pulp and paper and textile industries, especially in India and China. Europe took the second biggest share in the organophosphonate market, as chelating agents have been utilized in pharmaceutical and healthcare applications here for a long time and on a large scale.

Archers Daniels Midland Company (ADM), AkzoNobel N.V, BASF SE, Kemira Oyj, EMD Millipore, Tate & Lyle PLC., and Sigma-Aldrich Corporation are the key players dominant in the organophosphonate market.
